    Sneha comes to us from Rutgers University, where she studied art history and economics. When she is not carrying out curatorial research under the Chief Curator at No Longer Empty, you can find her installing exhibitions at the Guggenheim Museum. As a proud advocate of her South Asian cultural heritage, she also manages the BINDU Modern private collection and volunteers for Manavi, a non-profit helping women escape domestic violence. Inspired by the unconventional and inclusive practices of No Longer Empty, she hopes her work will help bridge cultural understanding and create positive change in urban economies using the arts.
